^^^I wonder if the training wheels are because of the weight of the mechanical rider, although it seems to be constructed from mostly aluminum plate and shouldn't be too heavy. Looks well-made.

My stoker/wife has permission to touch my butt if she wants to. I would not grant that permission to a robo-stoker.

This is amazing! The music is appropriate too, "Daisy Bell" is about riding on a tandem. Which incidentally, was also the first song to be sung by a computer, making it appropriate for a video about a robotic tandem
